Safeword!

PSA! - by Zarhooie
(My safeword is dayenu, btw.)

I'm dealing with scary medical stuff - and it's taking a lot of dealing; I've been on the phone thrice today about it, and you know I hate phones, and I am waiting for a related callback. I'm desperately underslept. I'm cleaning my house because asim's arriving tonight. I'm trying to plan for food for Arisia, and dealing with associated last-minute stuff. I'm working out a mostly-improv workshop with a fellow BARCC volunteer who just last night offered to co-present with me. I'm trying to get all the slots for the Backup Project filled. I got no writing done today because of these things and because of people trying to make their drama my drama. I have no idea what I'm reading at my reading and I have to get that sorted.

What I'm saying is that I am at a point where Id be overwhelmed even if I had spoons, and I am running on a major spoon deficit.

So my PSA: Unless your e-mail or comment or whatever absolutely has to be dealt with by Arisia, it may not get answered until after Arisia. I have way too many balls in the air right now, and I get the feeling that adding any more would be Very Bad. I tell you this here because right now I'm uncertain if I have the spoons to even say "I don't have the spoons right now - let's talk next week." (I get a lot of e-mail, you guys.)

My priority right now is to clear the decks as much as I can and then prioritize treating myself very gently, being as stress is a seizure trigger. I know you'll appreciate that, because you're awesome.

That must make for one hell of an interesting seder...

(Nothing important, or indeed useful, here. Cheerfully ignore.)

Have you noticed how much we talk about bondage at a seder? Hmm? :)

"No, I don't want to leave the house of bondage! I've paid for a full hour!"

(Now it sounds like the seder in Castle Anthrax...)

Iffn I remember right, someone once wrote a haggadah for BDSM people.

Ah, yes, I DO remember correctly.

As will shock you none, I am respecting your safeword.

I second the seder comment. :)

I send you good vibes to help you navigate Arisia happily.

I love your safeword.

Have a wonderful con! I send you supportive vibes for all of the things.

And if you let me know when you've open slots at the Back Up table, I can compare it with my schedule and see where I can carve out some time for you.

You rock.

My greatest needs right now are Sunday 12-2 and 4-6. But we could also use an additional person Sunday 1-12, Saturday 12-2, and Saturday 2-4. And if you can only do a one-hour shift, that still helps!

I can help you out on Sunday from 12 to 2. I have a panel at 2:30, but nothing really before that.

Yay! I'll put you down for that. Thank you!

Hang in there and be as good to yourself as you possibly can.
10th-Jan-2012 09:28 pm (UTC)
"(My safeword is ..."

Hang on, are you really supposed to tell us that? Isn't it kind of like revealing your True Name, or something...?
10th-Jan-2012 09:46 pm (UTC)
Between your dayenu and my asparagus, you would have a lot of trouble at my family's seder, I can tell you that....

Anyways, hugs and much rest. I hope you are feeling better when I run into you (sometime Saturday night I should imagine).

love that safeword!

Take care of yourself, don't overdo things, and ask for help when you need it. Be well.

Hang in there.

Some of those balls in the air will not break if you drop them. So if ya gotta, know that you can and you will still be loved.
